Notes

added flaked rice to the recipe because I had some on hand.
OG was closer to 1.048

Added foam axe to BK which didn't boil over which was cool but no hot break to separate which was even better.

Chilled and pitched yeast at 78°
Set spunding valve to 12 psi

added 5-7 drops of foam axe to fermenting keg.

no activity for 24 hours even though temps were cold.

Repitched new yeast, wyeast American ale II

fermentation change, having issues with tilt, maybe battery is low

Replaced airlock with spunding valve at 1.030

was pressurizing properly and rebounding well after purging co2 but fermentation was still pretty stuck.

after 3 days, switched to normal blow/off airlock and making good bubbles.
